Are you a fan of the 1980 “Maniac” film? Did you know that it got a 2012 remake with Elijah Wood? Well, if not, check out the trailer below:
In theaters June 21st; “Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill. A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present day L.A., Franck Khalfoun’s “Maniac,” produced by Alexandre Aja (“The Hills Have Eyes,” “Haute Tension”), and composed by Rob of the band “Phoenix,” is a re-boot of the William Lustig cult film considered by many to be the most suspensseful slasher movie ever made – an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and projoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.”
Thursday and Friday, respectively, we will be releasing our poster for the upcoming remake of MANIAC and its soundtrack.
On Thursday, we have Jeff Proctor’s brutal, gruesome poster for MANIAC. We previously premiered this poster at Texas Frightmare Weekend for the U.S. Premiere of the film. We are excited to release the remaining edition tomorrow in preparation for the film’s U.S. Theatrical release. We will also be selling a few similarly themed leftovers from the Texas Frightmare Weekend.
Check out the information for the vinyl record below:
On Friday we will be releasing the films soundtrack as our sixth LP release of the year. The music, by mononymous French musician Rob, is retro-synth reminiscent of the unique synthesizer soundtracks of the 1980′s.
We hope you check out the film this weekend, or when it opens at a theater near you. If you have seen the film you know how good this soundtrack is.
The MANIAC poster will be available Thursday, June 20th at a random time at www.mondotees.com
The MANIAC vinyl will be available Friday, June 21st at a random time at www.mondotees.com
